Granada is your basic colonial town with lots of old buildings and tourists.


Mexico to Panama

2/15/2009: After our flight back from the Corn Islands, we came to Granada more or less directly from the airport in Managua.

The hotel that Barbara wanted to stay at was full, so we spent 30 minutes walking around to nearby hotels. After we finally settled in, we took a cab over to a baseball game in progress. I was hoping for some major league players, but it turned out to be a school league.
